Travi$ Scott has officially joined the list of artist to have an album go #1.
Say what?! I know everyone is shaking their heads right now…especially all the “old-heads”.
The new wave of young rappers are really creating some commotion in the hip-hop community. Because of their age, many of them did not come up on the “classics” of the genre, like your Biggie’s and your Pac’s and your Gang Starr’s and Pete Rock’s and KRS One’s and Mobb Deep’s and the list goes on and on. And though some of the last wave of rappers may not have come up on those artists either (like Wiz, Cole, Sean, etc.), they’ve always paid homage and went back to do their research. This generation has proudly declared that they have no interest in doing that, however, and it has some people quite upset.
Like many “old-heads” (the ones who paved the way for you mumble rappers), Pete Rock isn’t feeling today’s generation and Lil Yachty decides to fire back after Pete started mocking today’s rap on Instagram.
Taraji P. Henson makes her presence known that she’s in Vivica A Fox’s corner as 50 combats her with that vicious meme.
Cudi the kid announces he’s looking to drop his new double album this month and is currently shopping a release date.
Gucci Mane just announced a slew of huge collaborative records he has coming out and one includes Outkast!!
Over the weekend, Lil Wayne alarmed fans when he took to Twitter to say he’s “defenseless and mentally defeated,” adding that he’d be “leaving gracefully” because he’s done. Was this a retirement announcement, due to all of the drama with Birdman? It’s highly likely, and his industry peers came out in droves to let him know they’re with him.
PartyNextDoor put out his long awaited P3 project this summer, but it got a lukewarm reception at best. In an interview with Rolling Stone last month, the OVO singer revealed that he wasn’t happy at all, particularly after giving Drake and Rihanna such a “moment” with the song “Work,” and not having one for himself.
Over the weekend there was a cloud that kind of looked like Donald Trump’s face. Someone caught a picture of it and it started to go viral…his legal counsel got wind of it and believes that it truly is a sign from the Lord that Donald is the one to make America great again.
